For companies setting up a platform as a service (PaaS), virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or another application that requires shared storage, Hive IO’s Hive Fabric offers simple management and low costs. However, it is not as feature-rich as some of the other software-defined storage (SDS) solutions available, and the company has not been around for very long.
Given SDS technology itself is relatively new, buying from a newer company might be a leap of faith. Still, the company’s menu of services is geared for simplicity — a valuable approach amid the complexity of SDS.
HiveIO’s Hive Fabric is a complete software-defined infrastructure platform based on the Linux kernel and the KVM hypervisor. It was designed for use cases such as platform as a service, virtual desktops (VDI), virtual servers and shared storage. It runs on industry-standard x86 servers and aims to be simple to use, scalable and flexible, while offering fast performance at a low cost.
HiveIO’s flagship product is its Hive Fabric platform for datacenter virtualization, which includes SDS capabilities.
